Valentines Gourmet Chef

Posted: Updated:

National statistics say that on the average Valentines Day consumers will spend about one-hundred dollars on restaurants, flowers and candy.

But, Minot's Gourmet Chef thinks more romantic dinners can be cooked right at home.

Bonnie Campo has more.

(Densie Lindbo, Owner) "We have a Valentines Day class tonight here at Gourmet Chef, and it's just going to be a fun night. We've got some really good food lined up, with our two chefs Jane and Paul that are going to be doing the class, and it's fun. It's something different. It's something new for a lot of people for Valentines Day."

Cooking gourmet meals sounds difficult-- like something you should leave up to a restaurant, but the staff here says they make everyday recipes for everyday people. Misty Weed says in her household baked feta is the favorite.

(Misty Weed, Class Member) "It's oil and seasonings and feta, and you put it in the oven and you bake it, and it's delicious, and you make your own pita chips. Well like when we did the wine pairing class, and we paired wines with things that you would never expect to pair some wines with. With like spicy things with different red wines. That's always funny and I always learn something new each time I take that class. A lot of times they just make stuff that I hadn't thought of making before."

Weed attended the class with her mother because her sweetheart was out of town, but when he gets back she said a hot meal will be waiting for him.

For KXnews I'm Bonnie Campo.

Cooking classes are held year round and usually start about thirty-five dollars.
